McMahan Homestead, also known as Landmark Acres, is a historic home located at Westfield in Chautauqua County, New York. It is a two story, five bay wood frame dwelling built in about 1820. The home features a semicircular portico with a denticulated cornice and corinthian columns that was added in the 20th century. Also on the property is a barn dating from the early 1880s. The home was constructed by Chautauqua County's first settler, Col. James McMahan, who came to Westfield in 1802 from Northumberland County, Pennsylvania.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
